Digital history Project

The Digital Ambassador scheme was launched at the start of 2016, and I have had the exciting opportunity to participate in it with my project entitled Digital History.

A recent post was made about my project which can be found here.

The project has brought about a number of exciting opportunities for staff and students to engage with the development of digital research methodologies in historical research. Since January, we have held a course for students on developing database skills to deal with quantitative records on an aggregate level, a series of mapping workshops which have exposed staff and students to easy ways to get started, and finally, an international webinar was held to highlight the many ways in which historians with analogue training can get started with small independent digital projects.
